Multimedia Player

 

This is a multimedia player that can play all kinds of media files such as wav, midi, mp3, mpeg video, avi video and so on. When you launch the program, you can select files of different types from different drives. After you have selected a particular file, you can play it using the customized button or you can use the buttons of the multimedia control

In this program, you need to insert the Microsoft Multimedia Control, a combo box, a dirListBox, a DriveListBox, a fileListbox, a picture box(to play the media files) , a text box and four command buttons which you label as "Play", "Open","Stop" and "Exit".

The combo box is to allow the user to select different media files from his or her hard drive or from other sources. The code is:

 

Private Sub Combo1_Change()

If ListIndex = 0 Then
File1.Pattern = ("*.wav")
ElseIf ListIndex = 1 Then
File1.Pattern = ("*.mid")
ElseIf ListIndex = 2 Then
File1.Pattern = ("*.avi")
ElseIf ListIndex = 3 Then
File1.Pattern = ("*.mpeg;*.mpg;*.mp3")
Else
Fiel1.Pattern = ("*.*")
End If

End Sub

The procedure to allow  the user to search for a particular media file in a certain folder is as follow:

Private Sub File1_Click()

If Combo1.ListIndex = 0 Then
File1.Pattern = ("*.wav")
ElseIf Combo1.ListIndex = 1 Then
File1.Pattern = ("*.mid")
ElseIf Combo1.ListIndex = 2 Then
File1.Pattern = ("*.avi")
ElseIf Combo1.ListIndex = 3 Then
File1.Pattern = ("*.mpeg;*.mpg;*.mp3")
Else
File1.Pattern = ("*.*")
End If

If Right(File1.Path, 1) <> "\" Then
filenam = File1.Path + "\" + File1.FileName
Else
filenam = File1.Path + File1.FileName
End If
Text1.Text = filenam

End Sub

 

The procedure to open the selected media file is as follow:

Private Sub Open_Click()
If Combo1.ListIndex = 0 Then
MMControl1.DeviceType = "WaveAudio"
End If
If Combo1.ListIndex = 1 Then
MMControl1.DeviceType = "Sequencer"
End If

If Combo1.ListIndex = 2 Then
MMControl1.DeviceType = "AVIVideo"
End If
If Combo1.ListIndex = 3 Then
MMControl1.DeviceType = ""

End If
